* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of Scamps, the [[TheGoomba weakest]] and [[FunSize smallest]] known form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]]. While they stop short of walking on all fours, Scamps have very hunched over postures. They're also among the less intelligent of the sentient Daedra.

* Most enemy vampires in ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines''. A Gangrel PC can do it too by using Protean to give themselves claws, which are then used with this stance.

*** [[MagicKnight Fenris]] is a mild example, but there's still a noticeable difference between his posture and that of the other companions. Get him to stand near, say, [[BlackMagicianGirl Me]][[CuteClumsyGirl ri]][[MoralityPet ll]] or [[KnightInShiningArmor Sebast]][[GovernmentInExile ian]] and you can clearly see a difference, as Fenris stands with his shoulders hunched forward, like he's constantly ready to pounce into action in an instant. And given his [[GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeDeath circ]][[LivingMacGuffin umst]][[SternChase ances]], it's probably [[JustifiedTrope justified]].

* The FauxAffablyEvil Rattigan from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', after having a severe VillainousBreakdown, begins running on all fours to get to the protagonist and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat the living crap out of him.]]



* In ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', Tai Lung normally assumes a two-legged stance during most of the film, like all of the other animals, but in most of his fight scenes he will actually revert to a four-legged stance just like an actual snow leopard would.

* This trope is used in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' to convey that someone "went feral" [[spoiler: by getting dosed up with Nighthowler extract]], ranging from Manchas the chauffeur to Emmett Otterton the florist [[spoiler: to even conman Nick Wilde; to be fair, this last one was faked]]. Justified; every character in the film is an animal.

* The Goliath in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' stands with a hunched posture. This emphasizes its bestial nature while still giving it a semblance of intelligence, as well as creating a body structure that justifies its ease of movement when it walks on all fours.

* The [[SemperFi US Marines]] claim their nickname of "Devil Dogs" to be a result of this during the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI Battle of Belleau Wood]]. [[CommonKnowledge So the story goes]], the Germans were dug in on the highground, and the terrain was so steep that the assaulting Marines had to crawl on all fours to make their way to the German positions. Due to the risk of chemical attack, [[GasMaskMooks the Marines were wearing gas masks]], and the heat and exertion caused the masks to be frothing at the edges with spit and sweat. Thus, the Germans were faced with a seeming pack of attacking [[GratuitousGerman Teufelshunde]], or Devil Dogs.[[note]] Never mind that there is no corresponding German version of this story, nor that "Teufelshunde" [[YouMakeMeSic is grammatically incorrect.]][[/note]] Another nitpicky note: [[note]]"Teufelshunde" is the correct nominative form - the "Teufelshunden" variant, however is not, being the accusative form.[[/note]]

* Riot of the Blood Iori and Leona in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. Also combined with blood-red hair, pure white eyes, unearthly howling, double the normal amount of speed, and gouts of smoke/steam from the mouth. Fun stuff.

** King of Dinosaurs (Tizoc in a PaperThinDisguise) in KOF XIV, as fitting for his new status as a Heel. Also with a more brutal fighting style and, of course, a dinosaur themed costume in place of his old Griffon costume.



* Orochi Iori does this in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.
